Who is

Keegan Smith

I’m a performance coach who loves helping people express their talents and abilities. So far I’ve learned to communicate in 3 languages fluently to help learn more about the world and share what I’ve learned. After travelling the world for 6 years I now mentor performance focussed coaches from around the world via the Integrative Strength Collective. I also work with athletes and movement lovers through the Real Movement Membership.

I’ve invested 6 years as a rugby performance coach in the NRL and Super League including a key role with Sonny Bill Williams and the 2013 Premiership winning Sydney Roosters. I believe in systemising success both in the gym and in life to create a positive change in the world.

Real Movement  is about building a “New Paradigm in Performance” that changes the way the world works. The performance enhancement systems are built around a unique approach to nutrition, the mind, smart training and optimised recovery. My best lifts include a 100kg snatch and 210kg deadlift. In 2013 gymnastics style training became a big part of my method for coach and athlete development. I’m working towards a 1-arm handstand, a 1-arm pull-up and beyond.

I now live on a performance centre near Byron Bay in Norther NSW, Australia where the focus is on training, educating, learning and taking care of my family.

My best lifts*

Fear is the biggest limitation for improving strength and performance. When we acclimatise the body to load / positions that it's not used to, we learn and grow. The body can accomplish a lot more than the mind would like to give it credit for.

None of these lifts are world records but they are way beyond what I once thought was possible.
Strength training has helped me expand my vision of myself in all aspects of life, and so getting stronger becomes a life mission to more fully express my potential not something to feed the ego or compete against others.
